I took this photo (from cheap phone) after work to show just how close the hen COMMON MERGANSER came to the west shore by ice rescue ladder #15. It was diving quite abit. Its in front and right of the white buoy , left of the Mute Swan..
Three merganser species seen today by birders. 16 HOODED MERGANSERS at least . (most of them at Three Sisters Islands)
